One of the most frightening creatures to ever terrorize this Earth just got scarier. The fossilized remains of tyrannosaur tracks found in British Columbia are providing the strongest evidence yet that these predators travelled and hunted in family groups — a conglomeration the researchers are calling 'a terror of tyrannosaurs.'
Though skeletal records are common, the footprint record of tyrannosaurs is surprisingly sparse. To date, there have only been a few isolated footprints found, and (until now) not a single reported pathway (i.e. multiple steps). Based on the limited evidence, many paleontologists surmised that tyrannosaurs operated as isolated creatures, hunting or scavenging alone for such prey animals as the Triceratops.
